Drive won,t play discs and sometime won,t reconize that a disc is

If the "bad" disks work fine in some other DVD-player, then it's time to spend $40 and buy a new DVD-writer.

Or, if your current DVD-player is under the manufacturer's warranty, exercise the warranty, to get it repaired/replaced.

It freezes when playing a blueray movie. it seems

The most likely cause of your frustration with the BDP-S350 is that your player's firmware is not the most current. Most often, the firmware problem is JAVA related and will not let the menus load at all, but freezing during playback has also been reportedly fixed with the firmware upgrade.

The solution is to go to sony's website, download the firmware upgrade, burn it to a disc and then load the disc into the player to fix it.

I hope that helps.

Certain dvd movies get stuck at various times throughout playing (freezing) cannot perform any other operations while frozen except stop.

This is common.It is caused by fingerprints, dirt, scratches on the disc.Once it freezes there is nothing you can do(sometimes ff works).Just eject it clean it with dry cloth circular motion or use wet type disc repair sold at retailers.Best advise clean all discs before you play them.Good Luck.

DVD deterioration

I would blame it on the DVD player. They are fickle when it comes to playing burned discs. Try playing the disc in your computer. If does the same thing there, the disc is garbage. You can also try burning at a slower speed, sometimes this helps. I would also try to avoid using DL (dual-layer) discs.
